are again, a defensive day by and large. the big question i got early this morning is what the heck happened in germany? i don't have an answer for you, and some people are calling it a mini flash crash. the dax dropped 180 points in like, eight minutes right after the open and i don't have an explanation and there is a series floating around about fat figure trades and it was very unusual to see that. germany is now down eight in a row and we are are down 1.7% in germany. france was down 1.5% and there were many knock-on effects as a result of this and that's all i can tell you about it. carl, i think you were mentioning these ping-pong markets and that's the other big topic overnight. so you are down 234 on monday and you're up 160 on tuesday. you are down 103 on wednesday here and it's very tough for active traders to take positions. you get a lot of complaints about this stuff. you get stripped out every day depending on which side you're buying protection on, going long or going short and it's hard to take positions and it gets frustrating for active traders and of course, you can stand
at a cost of $12 billion. the official position of taiwan's ministry of national defense remains committed to procuring those submarines from the u.s. however, as the u.s. stopped making these diesel submarines many years ago, the sale has been stalled. i know we worked with france and some of our allies on this. could you advise what the current status of this submarines being acquired by taiwan is? and finally, you don't necessarily have to comment on this. if you'd like to you can, but former -- but the former president languishes today in a jail cell in taiwan. to me it smacks of the criminalization of politics. . stoot extent this administration communicates with the president i urge you to urge president mah to do the humanitarian thing, president chen's health is failing. i now yield to you, thank you. >> thank you, congressman. i appreciate it. i'll take that and just follow up on it. let me see what we can do about that. on burma, you are absolutely correct. there will be bumps in the road. i hope not big ones. obviously things are happening today that were unimaginable a few year
, screaming at me, why isn't this guy in jail? look at this way, corzine's defense he put on a trade on italian spanish bonds. we point out that the trade turned out to be very profitable. people got worried about the trade in the market and they pulled out their money from, they pulled out their lines of credit. every brokerage firm needs lines of credit to survive, from mf global. the ensuing madness where mf global, maybe didn't have enough staff on board, caused them, it caused money, customer money to be somehow comingled with the firm money. it is hard to prove, that a, that trade was done with malice. which it wasn't. it turned out to be right ultimately. b, that he really was directing people to misuse customer money. it is, when you break it down, i'm telling you, i'm no fan of jon corzine politically. he is a very nice man personally, this is a hard case to bring. now i'm not saying they are not going to bring it. for all i know they have charges tomorrow. i haven't seen them and i haven't heard of it, but i will tell you he will litigate this back and he could win. this is
you were in china that you suggested the united states would reduce our missile defense system in asia for exchange, in exchange for chinese help with north korea. it seems to me that even though we're being threatened by nuclear attack by the north korean government, first of all, is that an accurate statement? and if so, explain that if you would. >> no, not an accurate statement. i think it was corrected while i was over there. it was reporting to that effect. there was no offer, no deal, no contemplation of it. what i did say publicly and i will say it again, is that the president took specific deployment steps of missile defense in direct response to north korea. and it stands to reason that if the north korean threat disappears, there would be a logical question of whether or not th that same level of deployment is necessary. it's all, i stated, was sort of a fact based on the rationale of deployment itself. >> do you think the united states should give aid to north korea of some type to temper their saber rattling, which they seem to do, about this time ever you? >> no. >> thank
disarmament. the reaganites in the defense department were horrified by this and put a stop to it but reagan didn't go all the way with reaganism when he had a chance to end the cold war, especially the nuclear threats. so it's a hard-core republican belief. if you remember the pup pup prime -- republican primaries of 2012, it was not that long ago there were eight or ten republican candidates in simi valley for a debate at the reagan library and every one of them said reagan set the example how maring be strong, reagan did with the soviet union and we should do it today in iran, we should do it -- we were right toy trite in iraq. america should use its power to achieve its spend destroy its enemies. i worked in the cold war and in the middle east. you have 29% of the american people agree with that today. >> richard, do you want to say something? you're leaning forward. >> no. >> okay. we want to take questions from the audience if anybody has a question, and i think there's a microphone somewhere that someone is going to bring up. why don't we start right up here on the aisle, blue shirt.
know, depending on what the government was willing to say to this defense lawyer, whether or not and what benefit he might get as a result of his cooperation. remember, from the very beginning, from the president on down, everyone has said public safety is the first and highest priority. so the first question he's going to be asked is are there more devices and where are they? and, you know, and so if that were the case, i'm not suggesting it is, but it certainly is the first question you want to ask and to get to find any additional devices you would want -- you would want to give him the benefit of that cooperation. so this will have to -- it unfolds very methodically, right, the investigators have questions and in the order of the priority they're going to ask him, public safety will come first. second is to identify any additional potential conspirators who may have been involved in the planning or execution of the bombing. >> all right. fran, stand by. don't go away. we're going to continue the nonstop coverage here. our team coverage of what's going on at boston, wha

to fund the construction of the national bio anding a row defense facilities in kansas. we've talked about. this i'm sure we'll talk about it more today the and i understand the importance of studying animal diseases, but i hope we can avoid providing full funding, $700 million some, full funding, to 2014 alone, for a multi-year construction probably. y building a building in lodge cal segments, taking away resources from other facilities like i.c.e. and the coast guard and fema, maybe even management moneys that we need from the department. and finally, i'm concerned by proposed cuts and the support that the homeland security provides to state and local governments and first responders through homeland security grants, exercises in training and as we saw clearly this week in state and local officials are the ones who will inevitably be on the front line responding to terrorist attacks. my friend always reminds us we need to be risk-based and we need to keep that in mind particularly as we consider these grants to our state and local colleagues. while acknowledging that our approach must b
